Notice of Annual General Meeting
The Royal New Zealand College of Urgent Care’s annual general meeting will take place at 6pm, Tuesday 30 March using an online platform (Zoom webinar).
As in previous years, full members will be able to submit apologies, appoint a proxy, and vote on Executive Committee appointments by logging in to the College website and navigating to the AGM voting page. Voting will open at 3pm, Monday 22 March and close 3pm Tuesday 30 March. Acceptance of reports, and items to be voted on at the AGM, will take place using the webinar polling system. This operated successfully at the 2020 AGM.
Any member wishing to raise a motion or matter for discussion should inform the GM (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 9am Monday 8 March, but preferably before 17 February (the date of the next Executive Committee meeting).
The agenda, details of the voting page, videoconference system, and information for each of the motions will be shared on or before 26 February.
Period for nominations to the Executive Committee now open
The period for nominations to the Executive Committee is now open, and ends at 9am Monday 15 March. Voting for all positions will open at 3pm Monday 22 March and close 3pm Tuesday 30 March.
Standing down is the chair (officer position) and two members (ordinary positions) as their terms of office end.
There are also two co-opted members standing down this year. They were appointed to ensure that the Executive Committee satisfied the representation policy. These are (1) a member representing North Island, outside of Auckland, members and (2) a member to represent Māori members. Should the Executive Committee (post-AGM) not be able to represent these two groupings, the Executive Committee will co-opt suitable members at the first meeting after the AGM.
Should any current committee member successfully stand for the officer position, or stand down for other reasons, the additional committee member position(s) that becomes vacant will be filled from those standing for the ordinary committee member positions. Those standing down in 2021 can be re-elected if they wish to stand again.
Members may stand for both the chair position and committee member position(s). Votes cast for them in one position are not transferred to the other position.
You may nominate yourself or another member of the College. If you wish to nominate another member, please first confirm that they would like to stand for a position (or positions), then email the General Manager (email@example.com) with your nomination. Those nominated will be asked to:
- Identify which post(s) they wish to stand for.
- Send a short bio that can be published on the website. See the website for examples.
- Be available for a podcast interview.
- If they wish, prepare a short video for publication to our private Vimeo account, and linked from the website.
